Driving Lessons – In Detail
Most people who visit this page will do so after deciding they would like to drive a car. So, most of this section is about how to get a full driving licence to drive independently. Before you start to drive on public roads to take driving lessons, you need to get a Provisional Licence. However, on private land you do not need a licence to drive. For instance, you can learn the Cockpit Drill, Clutch Control and Moving Off and Stopping on private land. Obviously, you gain real experience on public roads.
At this point, we list a complete set of driving lesson tutorials that you can work through. As you can see, driving lessons start at the beginning and work through to the end, rather like a syllabus. Your driving lessons will always be varied so you will learn as and when required.
